    It is normal and are you sure if it's power light instead of HD light is blinking. During shutdown, anything in cache would be written back to disk causing the disk activity light blinking. In addition, the system also kills all the background processes, unload DLL's etc...

    You can tweak the registry a little bit to speed up startup & shutdown.
    Code:
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon]
    "AutoRestartShell"=dword:00000001
    
    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer]
    "NoLowDiskSpaceChecks"=dword:00000001
    "LinkResolveIgnoreLinkInfo"=dword:00000001
    "NoResolveSearch"=dword:00000001
    "NoResolveTrack"=dword:00000001
    "NoInternetOpenWith"=dword:00000001
    
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control]
    "WaitToKillServiceTimeout"="1000"
    
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer]
    "AlwaysUnloadDll"=dword:00000001
    
    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Serialize]
    "Startupdelayinmsec"=dword:00000000
    
    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop]
    "ForegroundLockTimeout"=dword:00000000
    Thanks topgundcp. I will try that to speed up the process. I have noticed a big performance decrease since upgrading my personal computer to Windows 10 which is the Acer Aspire 5250.

    Count Mike, after tweaking the registry like what topgundcp said to do. It somehow disabled the hybrid shutdown. I don't know. But when I put in what you said to do, it shut down normally.

    I thought it was normal for the activity light to continue to blink until its actually off as its doing the shutdown sequence. Also you don't need to sign out before shutting down. Just one less step to do
    Correct .. that's the norm for me when I shutdown
